Acetate Tags anyone??
I had to try these acetate tags. They are heavier than normal sheets of acetate you find at the office supply stores. SU has so many cool rub-ons this year that just lend themselves to acetate. Combine those with Silk flowers from the Pretties Kit and some of our designer paper, and fancy ribbons and you can create the neatest tags for gift giving or to attach to presents. The "purple large flower with red ribbons" was created using Ruby red, and real red markers. It didn't turn out as deep true red as I wanted , so I took it off, and colored another daisy with Dyna Flo fabric dye from Jacquard. It's truly a REAL RED. The brown and yellows are the next smaller sized flowers in the kit, combined with the new felt flowers from Flower fusion. I used brown and white rubons on that tag. My friend Erica (See Erica's blog), used my original "purple colored" daisy and put it with Berry Breeze papers, chocolate, black rubons and an array of pomegranate, pink, brown, black ribbons. Enjoy!!
